Maintain Contacts and Use Synergy Effects

More and more graduates are interested in maintaining contact with their uni­ver­si­ty because social networks and professional train­ing opportunities offered by the alma mater can be particularly useful for the success of their careers and life paths.

TU Dort­mund Uni­ver­sity is also intensifying its contacts with its regional, national and in­ter­na­tio­nal alumni. With a variety of activities, TU Dort­mund Uni­ver­sity offers graduates several platforms to establish, expand and maintain contact with their alma mater and fellow alumni. 

We hope you enjoy discovering and networking!

The Alumni Network is the central contact and in­for­mation network for alumni of all departments of TU Dort­mund Uni­ver­sity. Membership is free of charge.

As a member of the central Alumni Network, graduates ben­efit from a variety of offers. For example, you can subscribe to the newsletter and many other print media to receive the latest in­for­mation on re­search, teaching and uni­ver­si­ty life across all departments. Register here for the Alumni Network or learn about the wide range of offers.

After you have graduated and embarked on your career path, the contact to the working group or the de­part­ment need not be broken off. With a wide range of activities, the alumni associations of the departments are open to all former TU Dort­mund Uni­ver­sity students. They offer the ideal setting to meet former fellow students, participate in continuing education programs or learn about the latest findings from science and re­search „first hand“. Here you will find an overview of the individual associations.

Internationally, TU Dort­mund Uni­ver­sity maintains contact with former in­ter­na­tio­nal students, sci­en­tists and friends of the uni­ver­si­ty. The affiliation to TU Dort­mund Uni­ver­sity is maintained even after completion of the studies or re­search stay in order to contribute to the internationalization of academic cooperation. The International Alumni are supported by the International Office.

Location & approach

The campus of TU Dort­mund Uni­ver­sity is located close to interstate junction Dort­mund West, where the Sauerlandlinie A 45 (Frankfurt-Dort­mund) crosses the Ruhrschnellweg B 1 / A 40. The best interstate exit to take from A 45 is “Dort­mund-Eichlinghofen” (closer to South Cam­pus), and from B 1 / A 40 “Dort­mund-Dorstfeld” (closer to North Cam­pus). Signs for the uni­ver­si­ty are located at both exits. Also, there is a new exit before you pass over the B 1-bridge leading into Dort­mund.

To get from North Cam­pus to South Cam­pus by car, there is the connection via Vo­gel­pothsweg/Baroper Straße. We recommend you leave your car on one of the parking lots at North Cam­pus and use the H-Bahn (suspended monorail system), which conveniently connects the two campuses.

TU Dort­mund Uni­ver­sity has its own train station (“Dort­mund Uni­ver­si­tät”). From there, suburban trains (S-Bahn) leave for Dort­mund main station (“Dort­mund Hauptbahnhof”) and Düsseldorf main station via the “Düsseldorf Airport Train Station” (take S-Bahn number 1, which leaves every 15 or 30 minutes). The uni­ver­si­ty is easily reached from Bochum, Essen, Mülheim an der Ruhr and Duis­burg.

You can also take the bus or subway train from Dort­mund city to the uni­ver­si­ty: From Dort­mund main station, you can take any train bound for the Station “Stadtgarten”, usually lines U41, U45, U 47 and U49. At “Stadtgarten” you switch trains and get on line U42 towards “Hombruch”. Look out for the Station “An der Palmweide”. From the bus stop just across the road, busses bound for TU Dort­mund Uni­ver­sity leave every ten minutes (445, 447 and 462). Another option is to take the subway routes U41, U45, U47 and U49 from Dort­mund main station to the stop “Dort­mund Kampstraße”. From there, take U43 or U44 to the stop “Dort­mund Wittener Straße”. Switch to bus line 447 and get off at “Dort­mund Uni­ver­si­tät S”.

The AirportExpress is a fast and convenient means of transport from Dort­mund Airport (DTM) to Dort­mund Central Station, taking you there in little more than 20 minutes. From Dort­mund Central Station, you can continue to the uni­ver­si­ty campus by interurban railway (S-Bahn). A larger range of in­ter­na­tio­nal flight connections is offered at Düsseldorf Airport (DUS), which is about 60 kilometres away and can be directly reached by S-Bahn from the uni­ver­si­ty station.

The H-Bahn is one of the hallmarks of TU Dort­mund Uni­ver­sity. There are two stations on North Cam­pus. One (“Dort­mund Uni­ver­si­tät S”) is directly located at the suburban train stop, which connects the uni­ver­si­ty directly with the city of Dort­mund and the rest of the Ruhr Area. Also from this station, there are connections to the “Technologiepark” and (via South Cam­pus) Eichlinghofen. The other station is located at the dining hall at North Cam­pus and offers a direct connection to South Cam­pus every five minutes.

The facilities of TU Dort­mund Uni­ver­sity are spread over two campuses, the larger Cam­pus North and the smaller Cam­pus South. Additionally, some areas of the uni­ver­si­ty are located in the adjacent “Technologiepark”.
